Tall people are at high risk of infection


According to a new survey conducted on 2000 people in the United States and the United Kingdom, people over 6 feet tall are twice as likely to be infected with the new coronavirus as those who are shorter, according to a new survey conducted on 2000 people in the United States and the United Kingdom, according to the satellite news website on July 28.
The findings, conducted by a team of international scientists, including experts from the University of Manchester and the Open University in the UK, found that tall people were at a higher risk of infection with the new coronavirus. This finding suggests that NCV may also be transmitted by aerosols carried by air streams rather than by droplets. Droplets are larger than aerosols and travel a shorter distance in the air.

Professor Evan Kontopantelis, of the University of Manchester, said in a university press release released on 27, “the results of this survey on the correlation between height and diagnosis show that the downward transmission of droplets is not the only transmission mechanism, and aerosol transmission is possible.”
“While maintaining social distance is still important because the possibility of droplet transmission is still high, it does show that there is no more effective preventive measure than wearing a mask,” he said In addition, the air purification of internal space should be further explored. “
The survey, which has not yet been peer-reviewed, also examined the impact of personal characteristics, environment and working conditions on the transmission of new coronavirus.
